I miss The Cosby Show. I wish new episodes were still do-able. I mean, who doesn't want to see Claire give Cliff the evil eye about eating a hoagie sandwich?
I think my neighborhood should put in a free bowling alley. Cuz who doesn't like to bowl? But they really getcha with those shoe rentals!
I know that dark chocolate is better than milk chocolate. FACT. No one can convince me otherwise cuz it's true.
I want rock hard abs like Kate Bosworth in the movie Blue Crush. I also want to be a surfer but I've tried that out and it didn't work out too well for me.
I have a lot of purses. And when I say a lot, of course, I mean ...........a LOT. It is a thing I have. I like to change them out from time to time and buy new ones. I'm running out of places to store them so I need an intervention.
I search for the remote (or the "gammote" as Char calls it) at least 5 times a day. So far, the longest I've looked it like 10 minutes and that almost put me over the edge.
I wish for a new camera and photog equipment. Like, a super fancier one, which shouldn't be a problem cuz they only cost thousands of dollars and stuff. ::rolling eyes::
I hate when my house is messy. It's a sickness, I can admit it. I need a cure. But if there is clutter in my house, then there is clutter in my mind. Listen, you can call it OCD if you want, I'm ok with that.
I am scared of cockroaches. It isn't so much the "bug" thing, it's the fact that they move so FAST. And they are so hard to "mass murder" as Jenny would put it. Whycome they can't just stay dead? All of them? I'll have you know that I am working on this in my own personal therapy. Cuz cockroaches are a part of life here in Bako and so I've gotten to the point where I won't scream and run. Now, I just silently stiffen like a statue and say a mantra in my head, "It's only a bug. It's only a bug. It's only a bug." Then I walk calmly into the other room, tell Shed, and curl up in the fetal position and rock back and forth for a few minutes. I think I've come a long way really.
I fear (isn't this the same as above?) going back to college and not knowing where any of my classes are, not being able to find my schedule, while everyone else is taking notes and preparing for tests, etc. I've had that recurring dream a LOT. Psychoanalyze THAT.
I always dry off from the shower in the exact same way. First the face, then head, then arms, then towel goes around the back, slides down the legs. I've mastered it really.
I love dark chocolate covered almonds from Trader Joe's. It's become one of those things that I can't live without. So, anyone want to get me a birthday gift? (I'm staring at you Farnsworth lady).
I feel sad that I can't seem to find that flo chart I promised Landee about Heroes. I'm still looking though! I know it's in my files somewhere under "TV show conspiracy theories and movie summaries".
I hear songs in my head frequently. Like, right now I am singing "Take me out to the ballgame". Can't really tell you why.
I don't want to ever make the mistake of posting "Tune in Tuesdays" again and then be gone for hours. That being said, I will be at the gym from 8:30-10:00am tomorrow so give me a leeetle leeway with that. AskMemzy needs to collect her thoughts sometimes too.
I wonder how our kids will view these blogs when they are reading them from outer space. Are they going to totally make fun of my wooden desk and plastic swivel computer chair?
I care about what people think of me. Just kidding! I don't usually care what people think of me (except Shed and maybe my parents) and that can sometimes be a problemo. So, if any of you need to, you have permission to tell me to "reign it in" every so often.
I regret not playing sports more. I am a srs sports fan and am extremely competitive. So, if any of you wanna start a pick up game of some sort just give me a call. But don't call me for golf. That's not really a sport.
I am not good at losing sleep. Memzy needs her 7-8 hours on a regulah basis or look out. However, I CAN go a few days being off but after that it's like Tina Fey in that SNL skit about pms.
I believe I can fly. Someday that Brains of mine is going to invent something RAD and I'm hoping it's the ability for personal flight.
I dance every day in my mind like its 1993 and Landee and Flemsta (Queso) are with me in the Wilkinson center and we are hearing Depeche Mode play from the speakers. Am I right? And Shed no likey dancing soooo. ......this is where my dancing ends.
I sing in the car sometimes and Char always goes, "Are you singing TOO momma?" Then I have to tell him yes and then he tells me to stop.
I write in my journal everyday. But it's on the computer. That still counts as writing tho, doesn't it? I also write blog posts in my head all the time. I need to start making a list or something like that.
I win the mother of the year contest cuz when I took the kids to the dentist last week my Cracker came out with 5 cavities and my Char Char came out with EIGHT. (he's four years old btw). So, I'll be expecting that trophy in the mail soon.
I dream really crazy stuff, like that I'm married to Patrick Dempsey and our kid is Shawn Johnson, the gymnast from the Olympics. Do you think I need therapy?
I lose the ability to talk in an "inside voice" when Landee is around. Every member of my family, including Shed, has told me in no uncertain terms, "You know you talk different when you are talking to her don't you?" My volume goes up to 11 when we talk, and it doesn't even have to be IRL (in real life), it can be over the phone too.
I never can seem to get the good parking spots at the grocery store. It's like there is a parking lot vendetta against me or something. They must see me coming and arrange all the cars accordingly.
I listen to a good song over and over again until I've killed it completely. A song doesn't usually "jump the shark" for me until I've heard it at least 100 times tho, probably more.
I read all the time, excluding the newspaper. I decided a long time ago that Shed can just tell me a brief summary of what's happening in the world. And I also ask him the weather every day, "What's it supposed to be like tomorrow?" to which he ALWAYS replies, "About the same as today". We work well together, we really do.
I am happy that this tag is over. That took me A LOT longer than I thought it would. Whew. My typing fingers need a massage. ::staring at Landee while I say that word::
ps. I need some input on some picture editing I've been messing with, so if you have a chance go to my photography link and give some feedback. Kthanksbye.

K, that's as far as I got because the book was just that...a little boring to me. Can S.M. not create a girl character that is different? Why must all her leading ladies be like this:
"I can't understand why he likes ME. He couldn't possibly care about little old ME. I'm not even that attractive, yet every man that comes near me falls hopelessly in love with me (if not romantically, than otherwise)."
And why must every girl play the martyr? Bella doesn't want people to protect her cuz she gets hurt all the time and is such a clutz. No really, Edward, you should just leave me here, I don't deserve you. Wanda/Melanie pretends like she is never hungry or nearly dying of dehydration, etc. "I'm totally not hungry. I promise."
Instead I think S.M. should write a book with a character like ALL of us. One who is obviously the hottie that everyone loves ::serious snicker:: and who will whine and whimper about not getting REAL bread and butter along with some Diet soda thank you very much, never mind about the surviving part.

He had dressed himself (shirt tucked into church pants and all) and combed his own hurr. How could I let him down? (note: I did not buy the pictures but I let him think I was buying them until he forgot about it all together---maybe a good parenting tip for Amy's book?)

So, we had some fun times on our vacay. A lot of the fun was just hanging around our condos playing games and letting the kids run around. Here I am getting ready to take second place in "Ace-y Deuce-y". We played for starbursts. Those blues are TASTY.
Char Char and his "girl who is my age". They had a love-hate relationship to be sure. Charlie ended the weekend with bite marks in his pinky. But how cute is she, right?
D & G's two youngest kids.
This one imparticular is heelarious. Heart him.
Oh, I heart this one too.
On Saturday, we headed to a nearby Alpine Slide. Here's the whole set of hooligans waiting for the daddy's to buy their tickets.
Shed and his baby boy, Chachi (we started jokingly calling him that and he liked it so much we've continued. that kid has, like, 12 nicknames now)
Here I am coming dow the turn while Shed is telling Cracker "get off, hurry, here comes mom!" Like, I'd actually not use my brake thingy to stop in time. Silly daddy.
I LOVED the slides and was right alongside the kids saying, "Can't we puleeease go again daddy!?"

Don't you just love how the strap thingy has to go under their little chicken cutlets bum?
Here is the scene right after our buddy yelled out "mermaid, it's a mermaid!" to all the kids.We even let "certain" people take a jab at driving the boat.
I won't name names tho...
Cuz I might get in trouble if I did...
I'm starting to see more resemblance with these two, no?

Need some advice? Should I wear brown or black shoes with this dress? How many hours of shows should I TIVO a week? Which cheese is best on a roast beef sammich? What is that strange sensation on your lip? How many days is acceptable to go without washing your hurr?
Just Ask Memzy
Good advice #1: Always remember to replace your refillable razor blade on the regulah. Because if you keep thinking you have "just one more shave" left in it and then you go to perform your weekly leg shave you will get lots of cuts. And it will hurt. This is bad. Fact.
Good advice #2: (this one's for you Cristin) If someone is annoying and judgmental about your parenting (or even if you think they are when they may not be) say this mantra out loud in the mirror at least three times a day. "I am the raddest, most awesomest mother that ever lived and so-in-so is not worth my time. I'll show her. I am flanktastic." ps. It's perfectly acceptable to video tape yourself doing this and share with us on the blogging world.
Good advice #3: If you feel a weird sensation on your lips that is sort of familiar, don't wait for it to go away. Go to the store and get yourself some medicine and rub it on cuz that is a cold sore fer rizzles.
Good advice #4: When swimming in a pool in the mountains....even tho it is a wonderful 75 degrees out and the sun isn't really that strong....even tho the pool is heated and comfy...even tho it's later in the day....PUT ON SUN SCREEN. Sunburns happen.
Any other questions you have? Just Ask Memzy.

I was beaming with pride, btw, and had to run get my camera to document the next Albert Einstein as a young lad.
IN OTHER NEWS:
We Memzertons will be out of town for the weekend. We are heading to Big Bear Lake a few hours away for some cooler weather and relaxation. Don't do too much without me, tho I might be able to tear the iphone away from Shed a time or to to check in.

Need help with something? Wonder if you should use a comma or not? What about this perm? Should I wear socks with these Teva's? Should I bunch or fold my toilet paper? Just post it here and let me know what kind of advice I should give.
If you are wondering: "Should I really ask this girl I may or may not trust for her advice?" The answer is quite simple. Yes you should. Why? Because I have good advice. How do I know? Because once I thought. "Hmmm, what should I do about _______(This has happened on several occasions.)?" Then I gave myself good advice, and it helped out a little. So if my advice is good enough for me, it is really good for you.
Here's some good advice:
#1: Don't use your bare hand to test if something is hot. Try ice cube. If it melts, it's hot. Good advice.
#2: If you have sore throat, quit gulping to see if it is still sore. It probably is. Sore throats don't go away in 10 to 20 seconds.
#3: If you are talking to someone you don't like do not say "We should do something sometime" just to be nice. They may take you up on it, and you'll be stuck hanging out with some person you don't like. And it will be your fault. So don't be stupid. If you don't mean it, don't say it.
#4: Don't use a fly swatter to get the fly that is hovering over the stove top as you are cooking dinner. That is really dumb. Then you might kill the fly but involuntarily it will fall into your pot of food, possibly poisoning your family. Cuz we all know how many germs those things carry.

Is it possible?
It is, it is, it really is!!!!
Now you can see why it was named that, right?
And it proudly sits in my TV armoire in the place of honor that it deserves.
Unless I decide to take it out and cradle it lovingly, of course.
Then I'll put it back for all to see. It makes me so emotional just thinking about it.
I would like to thank Landee and Jenny for this award, because none of this would have been possible without Landee's rodent issues and Jenny's cooking issues. I would like to thank my family for all of their support and for my computer which, so far, has never failed to let me blog as much as I want. Thank you all and goodnight.
